Silke Roskilly, Chair of CADS appeals to campaign supporters as legal costs continue.

Our small Cornish communities, The Manacles Marine Conservation Zone and  sustainable local businesses on the Lizard Peninsula have, for nearly two years now, been threatened with the re-opening and massive upsizing of Dean Quarry. CADS has filed a second claim for Judicial Review with the High Court following Cornwall Councilʼs decision, made on 28.9.2016, not to commence enforcement action against this unauthorised (EIA) development, in what is supposed to be a highly protected area on Cornwallʼs Lizard Peninsula. There is no planning permission for the current fence surrounding Dean Quarry, in spite of Cornwall Councilʼs own screening, which deems it necessary. The Hearing date is set for the 20th of January 2017 at the Bristol High Court. We need your help to ensure CADS can fund this court hearing and beyond.

CADS strongly believes that we must do all we can to not allow Cornwall Council and the developer to continuously act recklessly, without any recourse to their actions. If we allow this current unlawful situation to continue without any prospect of questions being answered or reassurances that the retrospective planning application will be filed in the foreseeable future, we will have failed in our duty to preserve and care for what is precious to our community.

On behalf of CADS I would like to thank everyone who has supported our campaign to fight the development of a Superquarry in this beautiful part of Cornwall so far.

Without your continued support and generosity, we will not be able to stop the long-term damage to our livelihoods, beautiful coastline, abundant wildlife, dark skies and tranquility that this industrialisation will cause.

Thank you in advance for whatever you can contribute. I realise that many of you may have already contributed, but your ongoing support is vital. Donations can be made using following details:
